Workshop Highlight: Using Large Language Models for Text Clustering

Today, the Computational Social Science Lab hosted an engaging workshop led by PhD student Justin Miller, focusing on the application of Large Language Models (LLMs) for text clustering. The session provided participants with practical insights on selecting an open-source large language model suitable for their specific datasets. Moreover, Justin demonstrated effective techniques to uncover meaningful data clusters. Participants, who brought diverse datasets in various languages, gained hands-on experience, enhancing the workshop’s interactive nature. This event underscores the lab’s commitment to advancing research and practical knowledge in the field of computational social science
